so i've been on "the pill" for over 7 months now (could be longer) and just lately, for about a month now i've been bleeding quite a bit all day everyday. i've always had pains in my pelvic region and stomach..etc and have always had bad heavy periods..

i visited my gyno about a month ago, that was before i started bleeding. i asked him to give me the surgery to see if i have endometreosis and he told me if i do have it to just take the pill 2 months in a row without taking the sugar pills. so there is nothing else he can recommend for me.

honestly i really don't know what i am trying to ask. i'm just worried i guess because i shouldn't be bleeding when i'm on the pill and not suposed to be having my period for a couple weeks. any info would be awesome.

Generally, a diagnosis of endometriosis isn't made without having a laparoscopy (probably the surgery you're refering to...?)

The best advice i can offer you is to get a second opinion. Your doctor should not be assuming you have something without doing futher testing.

It's not surprising that you are bleeding, if you've skipped your placebo (sugar pill) week. This is very common. You may want to call you GYNs office and let him know what's going on ... He may be able to prescribe a higher dose pill for you, or have some other suggestions.

How heavy are you bleeding? Generally, heavy bleeding isn't a concern unless you are saturating a pad/tampon in less than an hour. Heavy bleeding should not occur for more than a few days per cycle. If you experence severe pain and/or major bleeding (as described above), get to an ER.
